Don't check all of the boxes? Don't sweat it. We’re passionate about building a diverse team of humans and as such, if you think you've got what it takes to create a world-class QA function in our chaotic-but-fun, remote first, start-up environment—apply anyway. While we have a pretty good idea of what we need, we're ready for you to challenge our thinking on who needs to be in this role.


The Good Stuff:

We're a startup, so things can be a little chaotic, which we appreciate is not for everyone. If you like pioneering new territory or building things from scratch, you might like it here.

PegaSys is a remote first company which means you'll have the opportunity to set up a home office and ditch your daily commute. For those who prefer the commuter lifestyle, we also have a Brisbane CBD office and there’s always the option of co-working spaces.

Working hours are flexible with minimal managerial oversight, where delivering commitments to your immediate team and the wider PegaSys is the measure of success in our self-managed environment.

You’ll receive a generous leave policy. In fact, it's an unlimited vacation policy (yes, you read that correctly!).

Roughly every six months, we convene for an offsite, where you get to meet your colleagues in person, foster community and align on strategy. Our last meet up was in Prague.

You’ll get direct involvement in the recruitment of your future colleagues. In fact, everyone is empowered to contribute to how we move our business forward; from designing processes and policies to being part of working groups to improve anything at PegaSys.
